Assay for monitoring of 6 antibiotics in serum/plasma
Chromsystems has launched the first CE-IVD validated HPLC assay for antibiotics. It allows the quantitative determination of ampicillin, cefepime, ceftazidime, linezolid, meropenem and piperacillin in human serum and plasma. The assay is used to monitor the blood levels of these antibiotics and also provides qualitative data for sulbactam and tazobactam. The exceptional high stability of calibrators and controls as well as two internal standards ensure a precise quantification. The assay also includes a Priming Solution that increases the stability of the patient samples. The HPLC determination with subsequent UV detection is divided into two groups and requires only one column and one sample prep for all parameters.
